Sony F3213 reviews

Xperia XA Ultra F3213 16GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Graphite Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the Market I wasted my time trying all the other phones. See I run an ecommerce buiness that requires good photography, office tools, and speed. This is it. This phone is the one. Very impressed that I can spend under $500 and get a phone better than the top dollar phones. If your phone starts with an I forget it. It's no match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone to shoot stills n Selfies, NOT good for video... First off, I am rating it 5 stars only because, I believe this phone is designed for Still images and Selfies... If I was to rate with video features, then I'd give it 3 stars... I don't shoot selfies and I don't shoot many stills, I only like to shoot video... I highly recommend this phone only to those that like to shoot stills n selfies. If you're deciding to shoot videos, then check out Sony Z5 which shoots 4k/30fps and 1080p/60fps. That said, let's get into Pros n Cons... Pros: Still images are sharp and crisp. Stabilizer on the front camera. Phone worked fine... Battery life is also decent... Cons: Very choppy video recording. No Stabilizer on the rear camera. In video mode, the auto exposure is also very choppy from frame to frame as you pan...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone, excellent features, excellent price Great phone! The display quality is superb, very vivid and clearly detailed. The camera is awesome too. Very clear images, even when zoomed. The ringer and notifications are very loud and distinct. The phone itself is really slick, but a protective hard rubber case fixed that. Battery life is decent, but not outstanding without battery conservation mode engaged, which I don't use, but overall, this phone is perfect for me. The display size is very close to the Galaxy Note, but without the total bulk. Phone calls are loud and clear, no problem hearing the person on the other end. I'm very glad I bought this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice If you are a techno-geek or super gamer or just have a bunch of Benjamins burning a hole in your pocket, then move on down the road. But if your are a mere mortal like most of us then what's not to like? Big sharp full HD display, and with it being edge to edge it fits in my pocket better than my old 6 model. Snappy processor with plenty of RAM for multi-tasking. Andriod Marshmallow. Plays FLAC files for my music. Good volume on loudspeaker. Sony hit a home run on this one. And of couse the folks at B&H are stellar!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sony Xperia XA Ultra Review Pros: Beautiful screen display Great Keyboard for larger hands Thin light weight Great Camera Cons: Battery Life (Barely gets me through a day starting at 6am with medium usage) Using the battery saving option helps just a little for me. I will maybe get another hr from the device. Internal memory of 16 gigs just does not cut it for this phone. Updating the phone with the apps and anything else that comes with the phone right out of the box left me with roughly 3 gigs. Once I downloaded some of the apps I wanted, I was left with 1.5 gigs. When I purchased a 64 gig memory card. I discovered I couldn't move all apps over to the card to free up the much needed memory on the phone. 16 gigs was a complete fail for this device. Device is very slippery. Device made this big should be more grippable. In my opinion, people purchasing bigger devices do not necessarily want cases to make them even bigger. My friends, I purchased this phone knowing about the slipperiness and battery life however, the poor job done with memory came as a surprise. Sony executives should first use the device for at least 2 to 3 weeks before bringing it to the market. This could avoid major problems for consumers such as this. If they have used the device before bringing it to the market for the length of time that I just mentioned and didn't notice these failures then shame on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone for selfie The good, 6 gorgeous display with adequate FHD resolution (367 PPI) . OIS and flash in front camera. Wider angle lens in front camera. Up to 8 people (in two rows) can be taken in single picture without others help. Hybrid focus is fast. Object tracking, smile shutter features are intriguing. Unlocked phone means no carrier bloatware. Faster software update without carrier intervention. Overall software upgrade history of Sony devices are good. The bad, Camera de-noise algorithm is way too aggressive. It removes noise as well as image details. No Gyroscope. No AR in Pokemon Go. Photo Sphere is missing in Google Camera. Google Cardboard Camera needs it too. The most important, SteadyShot Intelligent Active mode is missing. SteadyShot standard mode is supported though. CPU is not impressive. Sometimes camera operations are delayed probably due to demanding background apps. Overall, it's a great phone because its price is so affordable. Don't forget to buy a 64GB or greater MicroSD card.
